This is Opal, a cute little female opossum orphan that arrived at our facility this week.
You should NEVER attempt to rehab wildlife on your own. Keep the animal quiet and in a warm, dark, well-ventilated box. Do not allow children to stare at it or handle it. Wild animals are easily stressed. NEVER give water or food to a baby bird or cow's milk to wild mammals. Note where you found the bird or animal so that it can be returned when it is well. It is important to get the bird or animal to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator as soon as possible. Each species requires specialized food and care. Birds' broken bones must be set properly asap. Never handle foxes, bats, raccoons or any mammals that could carry rabies, even babies.
